= WikiLit: A literature review of scholarly research on Wikipedia =
This is the project website for WikiLit, a comprehensive literature review of scholarly research on Wikipedia.
 
Unlike permanent sites like [http://acawiki.org AcaWiki] (which compiles summaries of scholarly studies of all subjects) and [http://wikipapers.referata.com WikiPapers] (which compiles bibliographic and other details of scholarly research on wikis), this site is a temporary project site for a literature review of a narrow subset of studies: those that focus on Wikipedia. Our goal is to host our extracted literature review data here while we are in the final stages of the review, complete and clean it up, and then when completed, eventually export it all to long-term sites like AcaWiki and WikiPapers and anyone else that wants it.

== Key details about this literature review ==
* We describe the methodology in detail in a [http://ssrn.com/abstract=2021326 working paper]; it is currently very rough, but should be updated by May 2012.
* We include '''only research about [http://www.wikipedia.org Wikipedia]''', not about any other [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiki wiki] or any other [http://www.wikimedia.org/ Wikimedia Foundation project].
* We focused mainly on peer-reviewed journal articles (over 300340) and PhD dissertations (over 2530), and have systematically sought to include these. It is a huge project, and we had to draw a limit to what we would mainly focus on.* We have identified over 1,500 conference papers which we [[List of conference papers|list with their abstracts]]. However, in our detailed analysis we have included only 70 100 or so of the most highly-cited conference papers. Because of our limited time and resources, unfortunately we were unable to analyze more than that in detail. However, we can certainly do detailed analysis of any important conference papers that we left out--please add them or point them outto us!* We do not include any items published after June July 2011or afterwards, after which the [http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research:Newsletter Wikimedia Research Newsletter] was formally inaugurated; we're letting them pick up from where we stop.* We have submitted a The wiki contains [http[Special://wikimania2012Statistics|{{NUMBEROFARTICLES}}]] pages, including publications and authors.wikimedia* For downloading and querying the data, see [[WikiLit:Export]] == How to use this site == * '''Search for keywords, articles or researchers [[Special:Search|using the search box]] on any page.org'''  * '''Browse articles by research topic'''s (click [+] to expand the subcategories):<categorytree>Topics</wikicategorytree> * '''Browse articles by domains of knowledge''' (click [+] to expand the subcategories):<categorytree>Domains</Submissionscategorytree> * '''Browse articles'''::[[:Category:Publications|By title]]::[[:Special:BrowseData/WikilitYears|By year of publication]]  * '''Browse researchers''':_Ten_years_of_Wikipedia_research presentation proposal for Wikimania 2012:[[:Category:Researchers|By name].]::[[:Category:Countries|By country]]

== Request for help ==
* Please [[List of articles to add|point out any peer-reviewed journal articles or PhD dissertations we have missed]] that were published before July 2011; we will certainly add these.
* Please [[List of articles to add|point out any other scholarly studies]] (especially conference articles and significant non-peer-reviewed work) that you feel should definitely be analyzed in detail. Although we have [[List of conference papers|listed 1,500 conference papers]], our limited time and resources only permits us to analyze a fraction of them in detail. So, please help us highlight the most important ones that we have not analyzed in detail, with a brief explanation of why they are particularly important.
* Please [[Main_Page#How_can_I_create_a_new_page.3FHow can I edit the pages about existing articles and researchers?|add any scholarly studies about Wikipedia that we have left out]]! Our restrictions in what we include are purely pragmatic due to time and resource limitations. If you want to add anything that we say that we don't have the time to do ourselves, [[Main_Page#How_can_I_create_a_new_page.3FHow can I edit the pages about existing articles and researchers?|please feel free to do so]]! Please add your own research and those of others that you know well. However, if you add a new article, please be sure to ***'''[[#How can I edit the pages about existing articles and researchers?|fill all input fields]]'''***, since we will generally need complete data for our final analysis.
* Please add scholarly studies published in languages other than English! Because of our resource restrictions, we could only search for and include studies in English. However, we very much welcome inclusion of the excellent work done in other languages. There is no need to translate the free-text article information, but please use the English data fields to enable comparability of the data.
* Please suggest any data analysis or visualizations you would like to see as we synthesize and present the data.
* Navigate to any article or researcher
* Click the '''Edit with form''' link at the top of the page
* For '''articles''',
** Basic properties: Basic bibliometric data for the article
** Identifiers: Links and bibliometric identifiers
** Topics: Select as many all topics from the category tree that are relevant for to the article.
